Cinnamon helps me feel better and I'll put sticks of that in water on the stove. Peppermint I've used before to help relieve gas pains and ginger I've used to rub up my upper abdomen when I have an upset stomach or nausea. I dilute it in another oil like coconut or sunflower.

Recommended essential oils for pregnancy nausea:

Peppermint
Ginger
Fennel

Be careful with essential oils during pregnancy, here's a list that I look at for what not to use....

Thanks, I think we may have gingerale (I don't drink pop) in the basement fridge left over from a party and some fresh ginger in the freezer but that is about it. I think I have to go shopping once again. Here's to hoping this helps. Sucks I have to wait until tomorrow (I am working until 11, unless I send dp shopping when dd is asleep....hrm that's an idea). Maybe we have peppermint tea - I can hope.

My freind brought me over the pregie pops drops she bought but didn't use cause she hatred the taste of them. They seem to be helping with my admittedly very mild m/s.

Same here. They work but I have little bruises from them so have to take them off now and then.

Chayla, that sounds EXACTLY the way I feel/felt. I wanted to let you know what ended up helping me even though it sounds crazy. I have only been doing it for 2 days but it has made SUCH a Difference!

http://www.karenhurd.com/concern_morning_sickness.html

I know it sounds crazy and gross but it took away that nausea burning feeling that is too low to be heartburn. It hasn't taken away ALL the nausea but now I can function, Im not trapped on the couch, and I can have conversations with my dh and my kids again. I combined that with the sea bands and I just can't believe how much better I feel.

yes choking down the beans in the beginning was a challenge but I already felt so bad i figured I didn't have anything to lose. I was going to wait a few days and make sure it kept working and make a post but I saw your post and couldn't not respond. Its worth a try. I know how awful this m/s feels.

Ewww... really? I have skinny wrists, too, so I guess we'll have to see how it goes. I'm just hoping the relief the bands provide will be enough to compensate for any pain!!

DH got me some preggie pops - the suckers and the drops. Some of the flavors are awful! They do work until they melt away... I eat them only when I'm stuck in a place where I can't get any other relief (like while I'm in class!)

Beans, huh? I'm going to have to give this a shot. As a veggie, I have always eaten LOTS of beans, however during the last few weeks, beans have not been on the menu much at all. Tomorrow I guess I will be making a pot of pintos Thanks for the advice!!

Re: I'm in LOVE with...

Hope it works for you Lindsay!

This morning I woke up and put my sea bands on a few minutes before I got up. It really helped. Then I ate my beans and I am feeling pretty good, just a little tired. My seabands are already making my wrists feel bruised but I don't care. I will take a little bruising discomfort over the full fledged hard to function nausea that I was having.

I really want to try preggie pops but I can't find them locally anywhere.

I used those with my last pregnancy, and I really need to get another set - thanks for the reminder!

I don't know why it does gross to eat beans?? I was expecting to have to put something weird on them! I eat beans almost every day so maybe that's why I haven't been getting nauseous. We go through about a pound of beans a day, just finished the last crock-pot full last night.

Though I have been getting indigestion, which feel like I could get heartburn. I drink water with bragg's organic apple vinegar cider and it goes away instantly.
